- Provincial government has fulfilled its promise by making the JIT reports public
(Karachi) The Sindh government rejected accusations levelled by Minister for Shipping and Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi regarding discrepancy and differences in Uzair Baloch JIT report which was made public by the provincial government on July 6.
Addressing a press conference, Sindh Government Spokesperson Murtaza Wahab said that the provincial government has fulfilled its promise by making the JIT reports public. "We said we would present official documents and have done exactly that," he stated.
He maintained that the Sindh government showed the documents with all the signatures. The official documents, with all the signatures, don't show any such thing.
He questioned, "Where he (Ali Zaidi) is getting these purported "official documents". He said that JITs, which consist of one head and several members, were formed on the directives issued by the provincial government. "All members finalise a report and send it to the Home Department. This is an official document and the signatures on the report tell us as much.
"So now the question arises that if a document does not have all the signatures, where did it come from, who gave it to them?
On Tuesday, Federal Minister Ali Zaidi urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo motu notice of irregularities and differences in Uzair Baloch's Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report which was released by Sindh government.
He said the JIT reports that were made public by Sindh government did not mention the names of the accused persons who ordered killings and were masterminding illegal activities.
He maintained the JIT report released by Sindh government related to Uzair Baloch is different from the real document that is based on 43 pages. He added the original JIT report bears signatures of all the investigating agencies, including the ISI, Military Intelligence (MI) and Rangers.
Zaidi highlighted there is a difference between these two reports. The Sindh government report is based on 35 pages, the original report is 43 pages. No one from the Sindh government signed it.
